The market for foreign films is growing. It is still rare for a foreign lanuage film to get a lot of recognition even with big stars attached to it. A couple of recent films starring Jackie Chan, which include a recent Police Story movie, have slipped the radar in the states. However, there is a new historical epic written by Daniel Lee called Dragon Blade. This film is not only headlined by Jackie Chan, but there are a couple of famous Hollywood actors that accompany the star. They are John Cusack and Adrian Brody.
Sam Tabar showed me the first trailer had been released for this foreign language epic via Vimeo. The film is based on the story of a Roman legion that found the dynasty of China. Adrian Brody will play as the arrogant antagonist while Jackie Chan and John Cusack fight together as underdogs.
While Dragon Blade will be released on February 15, 2015 in Hong Kong, there is nothing on the release to U.S. markets.
